Polymer Processing Research Centre


Research in various aspects of polymers, including their processing, has been carried out in the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s for over 25 years. During this time substantial investment has been made in establishing and maintaining state of the art processing and analytical facilities.

Building on the long established processing expertise at QUB in rotational moulding and polymer extrusion and extending into injection moulding, blow moulding and thermoforming, the Polymer Processing Research Centre (PPRC) was established in 1996 to conduct and support leading edge, industrially exploitable, fundamental and applied R&D to demonstrably improve industrial competitiveness.
